Kacey Johansing & Vera Gogh ( + Mariée Sioux ) @ Oliver Peel session # 10 Paris July 14th 2009

Kacey Johansin & Vera Gogh @ Oliver Peel session # 10
Somewhere in Paris July 14th 2009
+ Special guest Mariée Sioux
Today is a very special day Not only it is Bastille Day but it is also the last Oliver Peel session of the season before some well deserved Holidays.
San Francisco is in da house tonight with two great female Folk-rockers from the Bay area ( Home land of the Mighty Metallica ).
Once again the appartement is packed, the sun is shining , the wine is flowing and Cécile, our host, has made some great sandwiches & cakes.
The first " on stage" is the lovely Vera Gogh, with her blue dress and red lipstick she looks like a movie star escape from a 40's movie . She knows how to sing and knows how to act on and off stage too. Her friend Kacey ( who'll play later ) he's helping out on electric piano and backing vocals for most of the set.
Nice starter.
Kacey Johansing is next , great discovery just a couple of weeks after seeing Simone White at the very same place for the Peel session # 9 ( click for review & videos ).
She has a stunning voice and the songs are great.
She's got that " something" that makes her one step above the others.

For Bastille day , we have a special Encore as Kacey & Vera are coming back to play each one another song and Mariée Sioux who was here to see her friends is playing two songs to the delight of Oliver Peel. Mariée 's doing well in France and is on a french Label Fargo.
Nice way to close the season before the holidays.

"Les 3 graces " together
Once again NOT everybody could fit in

Kacey & Vera will play @ "Les Disquaires" 6 rue des Tallandiers near Bastille on July 20th @ 8:00PM and @ Belushi's Club, 68 Quai de la seine Paris 19th district on July 24th.
Don't miss them

Then we went to see the 120th anniversarry of the nearby Eiffel Tower.

The Eiffet tower on fire for the bastille day

Last show for me before the holidays will be BB King @ Palais des Congres on july 22rd.
